Iran’s Shahrud home to last Asiatic cheetahs
The national park of Khar Turan, located southeast of the Iranian city of Shahrud, is home to the last remaining Asiatic cheetahs.Shahrud’s Khar Turan, with an area of 1.5 million ha. in the province of Semnan, is the second largest reserve in Iran, and due to its vast scale and difficult desert situation, most of its animals and species have been able to save themselves against poachers.
The area is estimated to be home to 12-15 cheetahs out of the whole population of 50 living in Iran, and occasional sighting of the animal with cubs indicates a growing population.
The area has one of the richest diversities in terms of mammal species in the country, and has the largest population of onager in Iran as well as a good number of the two species of gazelles, wild sheep and wild goat, which ensure cheetah survival.
